PREFACE TO 1922-23 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently collected and carefully- 
arranged the useful and up-to-date information 
regarding Buteshire — the Officials for the whole county 
and its individual parishes, and Householders and Busi- 
ness people in the more enterprising districts. 

Notwithstanding the continued very high prices, we 
have striven to maintain our Directory as full as in pre- 
war times, and that without a subsequent commensurate 
advance in prices. With the support of former patrons 
we, with patient industry, continue. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we keep 
permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, per the 
International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 
and in our spare pages we again give glimpses of some our 
propaganda — which, we trust, will here interest those who 
hope for international peace, good will and harmony.] 

Those who wish Lists of Householders arranged in 
Streets or Districts can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 

The Evening Times, Glasgow—" Much information of interest find value to Buteshire 
folks is contained in the Bute County Directory. It is interesting to note that the 
compiler of the Directory, Brother George Higgie, is the only surviving office-bearer 
who was at the jubilee of Rothesay St John 50 years ago, and is still in office. He 
was manager, reporter, and printer of the "Rothesay Chronicle" half a century ago, 
and was the oldest Volunteer in the county during the war."

Cumbraes, oft the Ayrsmre Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnook, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heatlvand hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are ag 1 Culture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Eothksay- and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14,151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In

International 
Foretold 
Holy 




Language 
in the 
Scriptures 



The following is a reply to an insinuation as untrue as that refuted by St Peter. 

mHE MIRACULOUS GIFT OF TONGUES, on that memor- 
JL able Pentecost, after the Resurrection — when the Disciples 
met, with one accord, in one place in Jerusalem — caused very 
much amazement, which the unco-wise attributed to intoxica- 
tion (!) The Apostles then preached the Gospel to persons from 
" all nations under heaven " in the languages of the countries from 
whence they came. Read the desciiption in Acts II. 

ESPERANTO is also a wonderful means of inter-communi- 
cation among the nations, and more suited to the enlarged know- 
ledge and increased human activity of the present time, with its 
wide outlook and inviting potentialities. The blind and dumb as 
well as the seeing and hearing, can now intelligently speak and 
write to all who believe, and act upon the belief, of the fraternity 
of the human race. It is like an ordinary electric current running 
through all who join hands. It does away with the necessity for 
learning foreign languages. Its coming, its purity and its blessed 
efficac}' are foretold in Holy Writ. Though it is not named, its 
sources, and the nationality of its inventor, are clearly indicated. 
It is as free as the air we breathe, and owes its origin and propa- 
ganda to no creed, craft or physical force, but it is going to bring 
the human race together as a happy family, and work together in 
harmony like a well-balanced choir. Read Zephaniah III, 9; and 
Zechariah VIII, 23. 

The five Books of Moses, the Psalms of David, the Proverbs 
of Solomon, and remaining portions of the Old Testament have 
been translated by the inventor (Dr Zamenhof, a Polish Jew), and 
others, and printed ; Avhile the New Testament has been printed 
by the National Bible Society of Scotland, and the British and 
Foreign Bible Society, and circulated and read in every civilised 
country in the World. 

The Almighty Creator and Preserver overrules all things for 
His glory and the well-being of His creatures. " Let us make a 

chain." More than the Bible foretell the Good Times Coming.

-* village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connectedby tram- 
way. Kames Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhaabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1911 census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891. At the 
1921 enumeration (taken in June instead of April) the numbers were — males, 120i; 
females, 1529 : total, 2730.

October till December and January till March. 

PRIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 
ShOPthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful- 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing, 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of the 
Universal Esperanto Association's in touch with important regions all over the world 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwithstanding their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
on earth and good will to men,'' which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
"great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones was repeaetedly evidenced during the past troubles, 
Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by b isiness firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results, [t is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth " The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is y«t to be exalted, and fjrightfulness loithed. The 
longed-for league of nations is evolving, when hirraony and good will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacriies, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will n'>t come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

BOOk-Keeping". —Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to-

business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than

CHAR MoftheHEAT BER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
xa. hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is one of the acknowledgments we received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec, 1918. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £205 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Foubes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually'grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ;— " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holidaj' in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter orparcel rates.

The Isle of Arran. 

THIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed interesting 
sheep dog trials

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity on 
the Earth, and when we fell from the high estate in which we were created by 
our disobedience, Jesus Christ redeemed us, his Gospel of " peace on earth and good 
will to men" is to be preached to every creature, and " the gates of hell shall not prevail 
against it." The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of the 
perfect language foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns at the command of Joshua, and the lingual walls which have hither- 
to divided the nations, need no longer, through the genius of another Israelite, prevent 
'all people that on earth do dwell" — whatever their creeds, colours or idiosyncrasies — 
from satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of 

The International Language.

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a futa 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 

The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at the Hague, Holland, in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921 ; and the 14th at Helsingfors, Finnland, this year. 

Esperanto — the language of peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work aad tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It was used at the great international Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonious that it was appropriately closed by the singing of 
Auld Langsyne. Esperanto is more easily learned than alphabets of some languages, 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pie-eminently pro bono publico, is peculiarly fitted for cementing and making per- 
manent and happy the coming league of nations. The Finns are a free, alert, and 
up-to date people, and this year's international Kongreso there may be an epoch- 
maker. 1922.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
foi them, but something of far greater importance— the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 

Price to Subscribers, Two Shillings ; to Non-Subscribers, 
Three Shillings. Postage, Threepence.

In China, for thousand? of years, it was only scholars who 
could read and write the language. Recently, a phonetic 
alphabet was evolved through the instrumentality of fo- 
reign missionaries. It is not based on the romanic letters — 
so well known in Western Europe, and adapted for the 
different languages in India, — out the innovation is so 
popular that people in the streets are learning to read and 
write in a marvelously short time.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT. 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel ©f the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with Jlothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
continuing of everything as full as possible.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Str«et, 
18th July, 1918. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
tht Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transferred to 
Th« COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit- 
tors, more than one-third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yours faithfully, 

Jno Phillips, Librai:an. 



This Directory came out regularly during the stren- 
ous years of the Great War. 

We are striving to keep the lists as full as ever during 
the present time oi industrial depression. Being optim- 
ists, we hope we shall reap success. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
as complimentary as formerly. 



The "ca" canny" and similar anti-British tactics are paralysing progress and pre- 
venting prosperity. Unless there is a determined rivival of Industry, what must 
the harvest be ? It is not riotous Revolution by the thoughtless but Regeneration 
that is to bring peace and good will. 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as loell as on Business, but the 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing , are 
up in opposition. 

The Revival of the Touring- Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over : — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Hig-gie & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 
I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craigmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Win. T. Jonks. 
•Districts included in The Coast Guide. 
Pleasure excursions are now a pleasant memory, but the end of the coal strike has 
allowed a blink of what may again be in store. 
The above shoivs the Pleasures the public are again longing for but not 'engoying to 
the flul because of the "ca' canny " policy and the charm of living of the rates. 

The callous unmbining of Busy Hives of Industry throughaut the country is ruinous. 

The new "control" is a decided deterioration, and should be actively abhored. 

It is steady Regeneration the ivorld needs now.

A few Opinions of the Press of the former edition. 

The Bute man says—" This useful manual has been issued for 1921-22. The book 
extends to 150 pages, costs 2s, and the contents are as complete and reliable as for- 
merly. . . . Mr Higgie is the only surviving office-bearer of St John's Masonic 
Lodge at the Jubilee, 50 years ago, and is still in office at this the Centenary year." 

Largs and Millport Weekly News— . . " The different trades in Bute and Cum- 
brae are set out, which is a convenience for many folks. The booklet is commendable 
in many ways, and to those whose interest lie in the life of their community, the value 
of it on perusal is at once apparent." 

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald— . . . . " To Arran and Ayrshire people this 
Directory should be of considerable service. Buteshire is fortunate in having such an 
excellent handbook of local information, and the publishers are to be congratulated on 
their enterprise " 

Greenock Herald— ..." The Directory is most conveniently set out, and any 
information of any kind regarding the towns and villages will be found therein." 

Helenbsurgh and Gareloeh Times— ..." The Directory is admirably arranged 
and a marvel of cheapness." 

Price, Three Shillings. To Subscribers, Two Shillings. Postage, 3d.

Oenerous TepjusB to Scottish Societies throughout

These Publications are appreciated by intelligent, persons outside

copies of Bonnie Scotland's Risokts, &o., 

to the Red Cross Hospitals in Scotland, 

giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldi rs who had been 
righting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 
Men, and we received many thanks for our consideration. 

One never knows the goud received in unexpected quarters. A 
Scottish eoldier, while in an Egyptian hospital, "swapped" 
something with a fellow patient for a booklet on Pitman's ;• hort- 
' hand. He learned the ar% introduced it into the British Army, 
and presided at the Glasgow celebration of the ihventof*centen» 
ary— when he indicated the wonderful success of his innovation.
